DataGridViewColumn.Visible DataGridViewColumn.Visible DataGridViewColumn.Visible DataGridViewColumn.Visible Property


Gets or sets a value indicating whether the column is visible.

 virtual property bool Visible { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
public override bool Visible { get; set; }
member this.Visible : bool with get, set
Public Overrides Property Visible As Boolean

Property Value

true if the column is visible; otherwise, false.


The following code example demonstrates how to use the DataGridViewBand.Visible property, which is nearly identical to the Visible property of the DataGridViewColumn class. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the DataGridViewBand class overview.

// Hide a band of cells.
void Button6_Click( Object^ /*sender*/, System::EventArgs^ /*e*/ )
   DataGridViewBand^ band = dataGridView->Rows[ 3 ];
   band->Visible = false;

// Hide a band of cells.
private void Button6_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)

    DataGridViewBand band = dataGridView.Rows[3];
    band.Visible = false;
' Hide a band of cells.
Private Sub Button6_Click(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button6.Click

    Dim band As DataGridViewBand = dataGridView.Rows(3)
    band.Visible = False
End Sub


Use this property to hide a column from view while keeping the column in the DataGridView. To completely remove a column, use the DataGridViewColumnCollection.Remove method.

To hide a column that is automatically generated when binding to a data source, set this property in a DataBindingComplete event handler.
